Each year, the Historic Houses Learning Advisory Panel presents the Frances Garnham Award to a house or garden that's demonstrated a particularly innovative approach to education or community engagement work.

The Award, now in its fourth year, commemorates the achievements of Frances Garnham, who worked as Director of Policy and Campaigns at Historic Houses until early 2015. Frances was passionate about helping our places to develop exciting and innovative educational projects.

In 2018, the award was presented to Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire, whose small team have done an extraordinary job developing their education provision into a 'well-organised, productive and engaging offer'.
